understood this was not just about a candidate. it was not just about joe biden or barack obama. this was about us. who we are as a nation. what values we cherish. how hard we're willing to fight to make sure that those values live not just for today but for future generations. all of you here understood and were committed to the basic notion that when we put our shoulders to the wheel of history, it moves. it moves. it moves forward. [ applause ] and that's part of what we celebrate when we come together for inauguration. you know, yesterday americans in all 50 states took part in a national day of service. tomorrow, hundreds of thousands will join us in the national mall. and what the inauguration reminds us of is the role we have as fellow citizens in promoting a common good. even as we carry out our individual responsibilities. the sense there's something larger than ourselves that gives shape and meaning to our lives. the theme of this year's inauguration is our people and our future. throughout my career what's always given me energy and inspiration and hope, what's allowe

>>> good morning. i'm thomas roberts. topping our agenda today, president obama goes big and bold on gun control. this hour at the white house, the president will announce what's expected to be the most ambitious federal gun control program in decades. today's announcement brings together members of the law enforcement community and children, kids, who wrote to the president about gun control in the days after the sandy hook shooting in connecticut. nbc news has learned the proposals include universal background checks, bans on assault weapons and high capacity magazines, and an aggressive prosecution of existing laws. in more than a dozen orders, the president could enact without the approval of congress. >> the fact is they've made the political decision to go big for what it's worth. >> today's a beginning. today is the beginning of what has to be an every day campaign. it has to be -- i said you have to take this way out into the country. he needs to go into red states and talk about this. he's got to get on the phone when he's on air force one. >> as the white house ramps up

're watching cnn's special coverage of president barack obama's inaugural weekend. the crowd is out here. it's getting cooler. today it was warm. it was in the 50s. but it's getting cool at night. but that's not stopping the crowd from turning out. and we didn't think they would come out, because we thought it would be cold and they wouldn't be as enthused. but boy, they are. we're going to get to all of that in just a moment here on the national mall. but first, we want to get you up to speed on the news that's making headlines today here on cnn. and to breaking news, as a matter of fact. and the latest on the unfolding crisis in algeria. the hostage situation at a desert gas field appears to be over now. we're hearing reports from the algerian government that at least 23 foreign hostages and dozens of their captors have been killed. it's still not clear how many americans may have been held at the facility. >> with regard to the numbers of americans, we are still trying to get accurate information about just exactly how many americans were located there, and exactly what happened to them.
who never existed. >>> and president obama will take the oath of office on the same bible that abraham lincoln used. we'll give you a close look at this extraordinary piece of american history. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> let's begin this hour with the breaking news. algeria's official news agency has just announced the end of a rescue operation aimed at freeing hostages, including americans held by islamic militants. u.s. government officials tell cnn that may not necessarily, though, be the case. let's get straight to our pentagon correspondent chris lawrence working this story for us. chris, be what is the very latest that you're hearing? >> wolf, the latest that we're getting from u.s. officials is that some americans may have escaped but some may still be held by those hostage takers and they are still seeing signs perhaps of some intermittent fighting, suggesting that perhaps this isn't over yet. as the hostage situation stretched to a second day, u.s. officials scrambled to find a resolution and determine the state of the americans still in militant han

of the aurora shooting, newtown massacre and ambush in new york, president obama will unveil his gun control plan today. it calls for universal background checks, a ban on assault weapons, a ban on high xhas magazines that hold more than ten rounds, and most of funding for mental health programs. in the month since the newtown massacre, the debate over gun control has intensified with membership in the national rifle association reportedly surging. the nra is touting some 250,000 new members and vowing to fight the president's plan saying their second amendment rights are under attack. dan lothian is following all these developments in washington. what's the latest? >> the white house sees these recommendations as a way to hopefully curb gun violence and some of these things the president has backed before such as a ban on assault weapons. the president shortly after the connecticut shootings came out in support of that. so that's expected to be in the president's plan. also pressing for a ban on those high capacity magazines with more than ten rounds. that's the important note here. the aim
president obama first got elected. democrats not doing much better, but better, 38% view the democratic party negatively. so gene, the president's had a pretty good time politically since the election. republicans are starting to figure out how to come back. to the extent republicans have leverage in the upcoming talks, particularly on fiscal issues, where do you think their leverage lies given how unpopular they are and how unpopular congress is? >> well, i think they have less leverage than some people think they have. i mean, i think it would be, frankly, another disaster if republicans try to use the debt ceiling, to force dollar-for-dollar budget reductions. i don't see that as a winner for them, and i can't imagine at least the party establishment is now seeing that as a potential winner for them. i mean, you know, face it. the president won the election. and he laid out a program and a philosophy, and he won the election on it. and i think as long as republicans are going to take the stance that he didn't win and that, in fact, they won and therefore they get to do things their w
, president obama plans to introduce legislation next week calling for the biggest changes to gun laws this country has seen in two decades. yesterday the president surrounded by children who wrote him letters after newtown urged congress to take action on a number of proposals including universal background checks for anyone buying a gun, restoring the ban on military-style assault weapons and limiting magazines to ten rounds, giving law enforcement additional tools to prosecute gun crimes and improving the mental health system for young people. >> so let's look at all of those items up there. richard wolffe, every one of them has overwhelming support of the american people. universal background checks. 85% of americans support that. restoring a ban on milita military-style assault weapons. that's a 60/40 proposition now. limiting magazines to ten rounds. almost 7 in 10 americans support that. additional tools for law enforcement. you know that's got to be an 80/20, 90/10 issue. the same with improving mental health services. i bring these numbers up only to say, once again, that my r
